Carbon price claims

You cannot make false, misleading or deceptive claims about the price of goods and services. This includes false, misleading or deceptive claims linking price rises to the ‘carbon price’ applying to greenhouse emissions.

As a business, you are entitled to increase your prices as you see fit – it is business as usual. However, like any claim you make, if you choose to make a claim about the impact of the carbon price or why a price has increased, this claim should be truthful and have a reasonable basis.
